French Inspiration

This cake was chosen by Zahraa for her birthday, but this style would suit pretty much any occasion, wedding, engagement, birthday, shower anything with a dramatic or a French theme.
The stripes are hand painted with edible ink and the pearls piped on and trimmed with charms and tassels.  The charms were painted with 24kt gold which is of course edible.
Two sugar peonies and edible ivy (real ivy is poisonous and should not be put on cakes) to finish this cake.

This cake was inspired by a Lorri Hutchinson creation.
